The flight made a rapid descent from the cruise at 36,000 feet inbound the Stansted. The aircraft is now on final approach STN.

Flight data shows that Emirates flight EK65 made an on-time departure out of Dubai International Airport (DXB) at 08:57 GST earlier today. Flight time for the service was an estimated 6 hours and 53 minutes.

The flight continued uneventfully until the latter part of the service, when the aircraft declared a general emergency with code 7700., before hastening its approach and arrival into London Stansted Airport.

The aircraft in question is a widebody Boeing 777-300ER, registered A6-EQL; a 5 year old aircraft belonging to the UAE carrier Emirates.

Emirates operate a daily service into the airport, with this flight being routine.

At this stage, it is unclear what the cause of the emergency was during its descent into the airport from its hub in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

AviationSource will approach Emirates for a comment on the nature of this emergency.
